Close your eyes and try to imagine becoming a thinner, healthier, and more confident version of yourself in just three months time. Many of us spend a good portion of our busy days wishing we had a little supernatural help to make that dreamy vision come true. Maybe you’re like Li-At Ruttenberg who dreamt about a contest that could give her a makeover and the tools she needed to get in shape. Ironically, Li-At was granted her wish but in a way that she never would have expected. Recently, she and six other Santa Barbara Residents were given the opportunity to experience a true lifestyle transformation, one that can truly last a lifetime as opposed to a fleeting, momentary weight loss. Through a 12 week emotional, physical, and psychological journey, the contestants of the first ever Conditioning Specialists’ Transformation Challenge came to grasp the significance of will-power, fitness, encouragement, and support in claiming their lives back.
